SUPERVISORY FUNCTION FOR THE ON-LINE URBAN TRAFFIC CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT

The wider use of the telematic applied to traffic control and management allows or, better, requires the integration of all control systems that operate on traffic and transportation. Control functions like dynamic information, individual or collective, intersection control, public transport management, payments, etc., have to operate in a framework with clear and unique policies, common strategies, and coherent intervention actions. The integration is then a function that is more than a simple data interchange, but a real on-line model of the traffic and transportation in the town. This paper describes how the problem of integration has been tackled in the traffic control system of the town of Turin with special attention to on-line system architecture and the mathematical models to support the traffic control. The model suite computes on-line the actual traffic state, estimates the mobility demand, makes short time traffic forecasts, and determines a traffic state to be used as a "reference" situation for the control. The first results provided by the integrated system, in terms of forecast capability and accuracy, are presented.
